Restaurant was very busy on the Fri evening I visited, 20 minute wait. So I ordered something to go, came in about 5 minutes and I found a table in the mall to sit and enjoy the meal. Huge chunk of watermelon as the side and was able to order just half a sandwich which was plenty. To go drink... More

The staff is very friendly, the atmosphere is nice, menu has many options but the service leaves a little to be desired. A couple of us sat at the bar because we arrived 20 minutes early for our reservation. The bar was not full nor busy but took 15 minutes to poor a glass of wine, house wine at that.... More

Happy hour specials are pretty good but on the trendy side. What happened to plain old potato skins or chips and dip. Drink menu is good and atmosphere is casual.

This isn't the type of restaurant that I usually enjoy. I visited with friends so it wasn't my choice. But I must say that from the moment we arrived and despite the crowd and shopping center atmosphere, this place was fun and the food was great. The servers were very friendly and I believe they make the experience good because... More

Love the shopping center and the summer concerts. Dogs can sit outside and order with the family... which is cool if you are a pet owner. Value and food quality is only so-so. Definitly worth a visit if you are there anyway...

Best lunch chicken parmigian I had. Oh boy was this a delicious lunch. Good size portions, priced low 7 dollars. Totally cost effective, and you dont leave hungry. Atmoshere was relaxing, service was prompt and polite. Well worth a drive to eat.

The Lazy Dog is always an enjoyable place for good food served in a happy environment. It's fun if you are alone to eat and or drink at the bar or in adjacent tables when seats are available; seat yourself without going through the host desk. Lots of great snacks or small plates, plus an extensive variety of menu selections... More

I was really impresses with the decor. It does give you a great impression. We had to wait, since it was Saturday night. We were seated within 20 minutes. The menu was expansive, with many selections. I ordered Baby Back pork ribs. I guess I should have known not to order meat in a restaurant that catered to a lean... More
